Si Se Puede! Dolores Huerta leading us through a chant at the premier of her film @doloresthemovie, opening Sept. 1!

Tonight she thanked @womensmarch for "setting the world on fire". Well, she ignited the flame and kept it burning. I grew up in California and Dolores has been a Shero for as long as I can remember. As well as an honorary co-chair at @womensmarch. I am grateful to have shared even the smallest amount of space with her. Go see the film!
Who's got the power? We've got the power! What kind of power? People power! #stayhuman #keepshowingup #resist #doloreshuerta #doloresthemovie

These witches at the #Boston rally to #FightSupremacy are everything! Thank you @feministabulous for the photo!
On showing up and speaking out, somewhat in response to the Tina Fey video, but just in general... a few thoughts.
As @jamiaawilson so aptly states, " the inextricable and parasitical link between white supremacy and toxic masculinity" is apparent. White supremacy and patriarchy have historically been supported by both the "subjugation and the complicity of white women". This election, and the 52% of white women who voted for 45, speaks directly to that. In a time where people on the front lines are vulnerable and under attack, those with privilege, white people, white women, have a responsibility to speak up.
Yes! We need to laugh, we need to create room for joy, we need to be in community, but not as a trade off for our silence. And not on the topic of white supremacy and the rise of fascism where our voices and bodies are so critically important.
This makes people uncomfortable because it requires us (especially those with privilege) to dig deeper, be uncomfortable, examine the ways in which we are complicit, and listen. It requires us to listen and own our history. If we aren't uncomfortable, we aren't doing it right. That's how change happens! So we can all take solace in that.
Freedom and democracy die in silence. Right now is our moment. It is truly up to us. I love what @shishi.rose says, we need to "demand better conversations". We all benefit from more nuanced, complicated and loving conversations!
@jamiaawilson wonderful piece, "It's Complicated: White Women, White Men & White Supremacy" is up on @refinery29 now!

We are the leaders we have been waiting for.​ ​The Women’s Convention will bring thousands of women, femmes and our allies of all backgrounds to Detroit from October 27 - 29, 2017, for a weekend of workshops, strategy sessions, inspiring forums and intersectional movement building to continue the preparation going into the 2018 midterm elections.

Tapping into the power of women in leadership as the fundamental, grassroots force for change, the Women’s Convention will bring together first time activists and movement leaders, rising political stars that reflect our nation’s changing demographics, and thousands of women who’ve organized sister marches, huddles, rallies and resistance actions, large and small, since January 2017.

Participants will leave inspired and motivated, with new connections, skills and strategies for working towards collective liberation for women of all races, ethnicities, ages, disabilities, sexual identities, gender expressions, immigration statuses, religious faiths, and economic statuses.

The Women’s Convention is the beginning of a political groundswell, showing that the rise of the woman IS the rise of the nation. #stayhuman #keepshowingup #womensconvention #womensmarch #midterms2018 #wearethemajority @womensmarch

Three things you can do to combat white supremacy:

1. Organize Courageous Conversations
2. Pressure Elected Officials
3. Demand Justice

It's important to remember that white supremacy is not just people in hoods, nor can it be reduced to only people who are poor, rural and white. White supremacy is a web of violent and abusive behaviors bolstered by white nationalists, racist elected officials, violent police and law enforcement, corporate money, and you. Yes, you. And me, too. White supremacy is an insidious spectrum ideology, so most of us perpetuate it even if we don’t mean to.

If we want to win this battle, we need to open our eyes to all the symbiotic ways white supremacy touches each and every one of our lives — and then come up with the best course of action to fight it.
